Kingfisher is also called “the jewel of the clear stream” because of its beautiful appearance at the water’s edge, and it has often been drawn as a summer theme because of its cool feather color.
In this work, it is drawn with fresh green maple and gives a feeling of summer. The kingfisher, which rests its wings on a waterside stake, gives off a sharp eye that does not belong to its beautiful appearance. I wonder if it is looking for any prey … Kingfisher often observes the fish in the water from the top of the stake, and when it aims, it stops in the air while moving its wings and then suddenly goes and catches the prey. It can be called a hunter because of its high success rate of hunting. The ferociousness of such a kingfisher is also splendidly expressed by the art of Kuzuya Seizan, a master of Kachō-ga (bird-and-flower painting). It is an impressive work that gives off a feeling of tension even in a refreshing summer scene.
